dc.description.abstractThe stratigraphical succession of the Digermul Peninsula consists of about 3000 metres of conformable clastic sediments with carbonates and volcanic rocks absent. It has been divided into two groups. The lower, Vestertana Group, is about 1450 metres thick and starts with two tillite formations. It includes slates, ortho-quartizite and greywacke sandstones. No body fossils have been found in the group but trace fossils are abundant. The upper, Digermul Group, is about 1500 metres thick and consists of alternate units of sandstones and shales. The sandstones are mainly orthoquartzites. Fossils, including trilobites and brachiopods, occur at several horizons and an age ranging from Lower Cambrian to Tremadocian has been established. The principle structure is a major south eastward facing overturned syncline within which there are many minor folds and thrusts. A major overthrust of the \"Caledonian\" metamorphic complex from the NNW followed the formation of this structure. The last event was normal faulting along W-E and WNW-ESE lines. A few post-folding quartz dolorite dykes also occur.
